For many patients, bariatric surgery is affordable because it is covered by their health insurance plan. People who do not have insurance coverage for weight loss surgery must pay for it on their own. This is called self-pay or cash-pay. Often, these patients consider the surgery a critical investment in their health.
Whether you have health insurance or opt for self-pay, you will need to prepare detailed written documentation before your procedure. From diet history to co-morbid conditions, this information is valuable for you as you embark on this journey to improved health.
